They were only four weeks old, too young to be separated from their mother who was frantically pacing nearby. Fortunately the pups were found before they suffocated and put into a foster home by the Toledo Area Humane Society.
The Humane Society will take owner surrendered dogs when the owner cannot care for them.
Because they have been so inbred and overbred, it is also not unusual for veterinarian bills to be that much.
These little guys have the sweet Bulldog faces but hopefully they won’t have those genetic weaknesses.
At any rate 132 people filled out applications for adoption. A lottery was held for the mother and six pups, winners were carefully screened, and seven happy families were thrilled to come in to meet their new family members.
The perp, Howard Davis, 56, lived only a couple of blocks from where he abandoned the puppies. He was quickly caught due to keen detective work—and the fact that he had left a tag on the suitcase with his name and contact information. And the fact that the mother dog matches the description of a dog he had licensed. And the fact that an eyewitness claims to have seen him drive off.
None of his lies excuses made sense and eventually he entered a no contest plea to misdemeanor charges of animal abandonment and cruelty. He is expected to be placed on probation for four years.
He also agreed to pay $466 to the Toledo Area Humane Society and to spay and neuter the other dogs he owns.
Wait, what? Other dogs he owns?
The man is too stupid to own a pet rock.
